We”re delighted to confirm TWO more #meetngyourheroes events.

Isla Short – Sunday 7th July 4pm

Isla Short is an Elite World XC MTB Racer who rides for Short Factory Racing. He video is below – it’s fantastic and we’re really privileged to have her come and speak to us. The last time we saw her was when we were cheering her on at the XC World Cup in Les Gets last summer and now she’s going to be on our Zoom call!

Ross Mckechnie – Monday 8th July 7.30pm

Ross’ name might not be quite as familiar but his story is just as exceptional. We talk about racing a lot in the club but at their core bicycles for me have always been about going places. Cycle touring is surely the pinnacle of this, some of my greatest holidays have been just exploring a new place by bike.

Now I’ve cycled in China, but it never occurred to me to just keep going – it did to Ross. presumably he must have set out on his bike one morning and forgot to stop until he got home to Scotland. It genuinely sounds like my dream trip and I can’t wait to hear about it. Thanks to Simon for sorting it out, see a taster of his trip below…
